Premium Bluetooth

Premium Bluetooth

The audio quality of most Bluetooth products isn't usually very inspiring and their limited range can be frustrating. The B2 solves these problems by implementing the aptX codec, which is a high-quality audio converter designed specifically for audio. The B2 also has special circuitry and a precision-tuned antenna to extend the wireless range, providing much more versatility than other Bluetooth speakers.

The hand-finished all-wood cabinet of the B2 reflects traditional Audioengine design and the high-quality components and audio fidelity are typical of Audioengine's commitment to great sound at affordable prices. The Audioengine B2 continues to close the gap between your computer music and home hi-fi and even if you're not an audio enthusiast Audioquest guarantee your music will sound better!

DAC Characteristics

DAC Characteristics

The B2 Bluetooth speaker system utilizes the TI PCM5102A DAC, widely know for it's low noise and high fidelity. Due to the PCM5102A's high signal-to-noise specs, 24-bit upsampling and benefit of triple redundancy power source conversion and filtering, the B2 presents impressive low noise and low distortion characteristics with a noticeable improvement over other Bluetooth speakers.

Custom-built Components

Custom-built Components

Audioengine designs and manufactures their own tweeters, woofers, and many other critical components. What is not not fabricated directly in their factories they have custom-made to strict specifications (parts such as toroidal transformers, magnets). The speaker cabinets, drivers, bass port designs, amplifiers, and crossovers are all painstakingly tuned together for each Audioengine model.

Based on Studio Monitors

Based on Studio Monitors

Studio monitor speakers are used by producers and engineers in recording and production studios. They're designed with a theoretical flat frequency response which allows the engineer to create a final mix in such a way that the recorded music will sound good on most other speakers. Although Audioengine speakers carry over much of the same higher-end technology, components, and design philosophy for all Audioengine speaker systems.

High Quality Drivers

High Quality Drivers

Audioengine uses audiophile-quality, ferro fluid cooled, silk dome tweeters with neodymium magnets. Silk tweeters hold up well under high power and the edge-driven design gives very smooth response. The custom woofers are Kevlar woven glass aramid composite with rubber surrounds. Kevlar is obviously very strong, which means that the woofer retains its shape when being driven at high levels.

MDF Cabinet

MDF Cabinet

To minimize unwanted resonances and distortion, Audioengine cabinets have thick high-resin MDF walls with extensive internal bracing. Heavy internal sound-damping material is also used to reduce unwanted sound reflections inside the cabinet. The B2 cabinet is a unique design in that it has dual sub-enclosures to prevent cross-interference, while each side contains its own tuned, front-port bass slot.

Power Amplifier

Power Amplifier

The class A/B amplifiers in Audioengine speaker systems are very conservatively-rated analog designs. Each subsystem is tuned together for all models, providing a much more efficient system requiring less power than passive speakers and separate amplifiers. An auto-standby idle mode is also included to conserve power when you're not playing music.
